Hear 44% better in the Real-World with AB’s


AB is the only system that lets you wear headphones and use cell phones, wireless headsets and other devices the way people with normal hearing do.

  Wireless Hands-Free Hassle-Free Hearing

The outer ear’s shape is all about capturing sound. So when it came time to choose a location for Harmony’s microphone, the decision was natural. The T-Mic is situated near the entrance of the ear canal, where it can take full advantage of the outer ear’s remarkable sound-gathering ability.

T-Mic’s natural placement and wireless connectivity mean that you or your loved one can simply hold a phone up to the implanted ear and use it just like people with normal hearing. There are no special wires, cables, or adapters/connectors required—you can even use a hands-free headset.

Wireless connectivity means that T-Mic is fully compatible with commercial headsets and ear buds like those that come with MP3 players or are found on airplanes and in music stores. So you or your loved one can enjoy in-flight movies or listen to music before buying, just like people with normal hearing.

Hear Your Best in Noisy Surroundings Only with AB.

in noise with AB’s unique T-Mic™ than with a behind-the-ear (BTE) microphone1.
The competition has a BTE microphone.
